Tua Tagovailoa In Line To Start Against Steelers On Sunday

Tua Tagovailoa has revealed he doesn’t remember what happened after he suffered a concussion against the Bengals on September 29.

The Miami Dolphins quarterback was carted off the field and taken to hospital. The subject of some debate, Tua Tagovailoa has now cleared the league’s concussion protocol and will start Sunday against Pittsburgh.

In his absence, Miami turned to Teddy Bridgewater and Skylar Thompson, losing both games by a 64-33 margin.

“I’m just really excited that I can prepare and play this Sunday,” Tua Tagovailoa said.

“I think everyone is excited to go out there and compete against a really good Steelers team.”

“I wouldn’t say it was scary for me at the time because there was a point where I was unconscious,” Tagovailoa said. “I couldn’t really tell what was going on. So when I did come to and kind of realize what was going on, what was happening, I didn’t think of anything long-term or short-term. I was just wondering what happened.

“I remember the entire night up to the point where I got tackled, but yeah, after I got tackled, I don’t remember much from there. Getting carted off, I don’t remember that. But I do remember things that were going on in the ambulance and then when I arrived at the hospital.”

His return is timely, as the Steelers are riding high after their surprise win over Tampa Bay in which they held their opponents to 18 points. With Tua back, the Dolphins will expect to hurt Pittsburgh more than that.

“There’s things that you can do in the locker room to keep the guys encouraged, to keep the guys going, motivated,” Tagovailoa said. “But it sucks. As a competitor, I want to be out there with the guys. I want to be able to go out there and help our guys win games. That’s a terrible feeling that I could only watch from the sidelines.”
